14 Reasons to Fall in Love with Solatube
1. You get endless FREE daylight!
Solatube is a natural daylighting system that provides you with natural sunlight to a dark room in your home. The sun shines through the dome that is situated on your rooftop and the light moves through the tube, leaving the brightest light inside your home. Concerned about rainy days? Don’t be! You will still get plenty of light through your tube on rainy, cloudy days.
2. They can fit pretty much anywhere
The Spectralight Infinity tubing comes in separate sections that fit together like a puzzle. These pieces can bend and turn to fit any angle. This allows for Solatube to reach any dark room you may have even if they are floors apart. Regardless of the number of turns and angles, the innovative reflective tubing will not refract any light coming into your home.
3. They have a low-profile
These nifty little tubes have a very low-profile dome that sits right on top of your roof. If you’re worried about the way they will look from the road, the tubes can be place on the backside of your roof and still reach any of your dark rooms.
4. They do not require any electricity
How cool is that? What you see is what you get. You do not have to plug in these tubes to receive the free sunlight.
5. They’re Leak-free!
Yes, we do have to cut a hole, but I promise we’ll fill it in! The caps and roof accessories used in combination with the dome and seals, provide a virtually leak-proof system. We also provide a lifetime leak-proof guarantee and in our 8+ years of service, have never experienced any leaks with these systems.
6. You can make them unique to your home
There are several fixture options available when purchasing your Solatube. These fixtures are interchangeable and can be changed out after installation.
7. They can bring light to ANY room in your home
Because the tubing is made up of several separate pieces, we can extend these tubes to just about anywhere in your home. They can go from the back of your home to the front, or even from the third floor to the first!
8. They work … even at night!
This great daylighting system is also a great night-lighting system! Our Solatubes include an integrated solar nightlight that gives off soft-glow night light. There are dimmer switches available so that you aren’t indebted to constant light in your home.
9. Your furniture/carpet wont fade
Solatube's Raybender 3000 technology protects your family and your furniture from the suns harmful rays. This redirects low-angle sunlight in the winter months, while rejecting overpowering mid-day summer sunlight. A LightTracker Reflector also aids in increasing light input for a greater light output.
10. They are easy to clean
The lens fixtures are easy to twist off making for a quick and easy clean. However, you should not need to do so often.
11. There is more than one size
Big or small we’ve got you covered! Solatubes come in a 14-inch tube and a 10-inch tube so that you can choose the best fit for you.
12. They can make you money
You read that right. Because these tubes have that solar nightlight included, they are eligible for a total tax credit of 55%! There is a 35% federal tax credit and a 25% South Carolina State tax credit for solar products. So not only are you saving on your electric bill, you’re making money at the same time!
13. Installation is a piece of cake
These Solatubes have about a two-hour installation time. So, in the time it takes you to finish those last two episodes of Game of Thrones, you could have a Solatube installed!
